Mythic, worshipped in Celtic Ireland, beginning circa 600 B.C.E.
The Celtic goddess of war and death, Morrigan is similar to Alecto of the Furies. Literally “great queen,” she is a tripartite goddess with multiple identities. Sometimes she is paired with two other Celtic goddesses, Macha and Badb, to form the triple goddess; alternatively, Macha, Badb, and Nemain are seen as a triple goddess, collectively called Morrigan. Citing her association with death, particularly on the battlefield, she is sometimes depicted as a carrion crow, but also has associations with cattle, suggesting a connection with the land and fertility.
